Hyperakt creates meaningful design for the common good

We communicate world‑changing ideas

We channel our clients' voices and values, create compelling narratives, and make complex information accessible. Online and off.

On the frontlines of social change

Our clients are leading humanitarian organizations, philanthropies, tech innovators, universities, and social enterprises who tackle the toughest challenges of our time and champion those who have been left behind.

Our work makes waves

We have a reputation for excellence. We’ve won significant awards, received recognition from prominent publications, and been featured in exhibits around the world.

“By having a bigger purpose, it just might be that Hyperakt's building a 21st century design studio: the crucible of big, world-changing ideas.”

Harvard Business Review

“Hyperakt offers a rare case study in balancing idealism with pragmatism.”

Big Think

“The advertising clichés provided by Mad Men can’t be further from the 21st century truth: that creatives now, more than ever, are interested in furthering community and social goals. Hyperakt is one of those standard-bearers.”
